If you don't get these, then you don't have xdmcp listening, no matter what 
adjustments you have made.

I'm guessing here, but if you are using KDE's kdm, then you will probably 
find a kdmrc file somewhere (/etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc on RedHat) which says...
# Whether KDM should listen to XDMCP requests. Default is true.

Either comment out the enable line, or make it say 'true'.

This kdmrc file is a new feature in KDE 2.2 - previously KDE just used xdm's 

A similar edit in gdm.conf needs to be made if you are using GNOME's gdm.
